I thank my God always concerning you, for the grace (5 of God which was given you in Christ Jesus; "that in every thing ye were enriched in him, in all 3utterance 6 and all knowledge; "even as the testimony of Christ was 7 confirmed in you: "so that ye come behind in no gift; (8 waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ; "who shall also confirm you unto the end, that be unreprove9 able in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. "God is faithful, through whom ye were called into the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.


Now I beseech you, brethren, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfected together in the same mind and in the same II judgement. "For it hath been signified unto me concerning you, my brethren, by them which are of the household of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12 "Now this I mean, that each one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of

God that I baptized none of you, save Crispus and Gaius; (15 "lest any man should say that ye were baptized into my 16 name. "And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. "For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not in wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made void.



For the word of the cross is to them that are perishing foolishness; but unto us which are being saved it is the 19) power of God. "For it is written,

I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,

And the prudence of the prudent will I reject.

(20 "Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the 21 wisdom of the world?
